For three decades and longer we have heard educators and technologists making a case for the transformative power of technology in learning. However, despite the rhetoric, in many ways and at most institutional sites, education is still relatively untouched by technology. Even when technologies are introduced, the changes sometimes seem insignificant and the results seem disappointing. If the print textbook is replaced by an e-book, do the social relations of knowledge and learning necessarily change at all or for the better? If the pen-and-paper test is mechanized, does this change the nature of our assessment systems? Technology, in other words, need not necessarily bring significant change. Technology might not even represent a step forward in education.

來自E-LEARNING ECOLOGIES: INNOVATIVE APPROACHES TO TEACHING AND LEARNING FOR THE DIGITAL AGE的熱門評論
An intense course, that requires lot of research and reading. The course covers a variety of interesting topics and gives the opportunity to read contributions of peers .
A good general survey of instruction and incorporating digital technologies. I enjoyed the course but did not particularly care for the assignments that were redundant.
I appreciated the well-organized format and overall the way the course was designed. Particularly the opportunity to choose our own areas of focus for assignments to learn more.
This course was very interesting and thought provoking. I would certainly recommend for any teacher that is now trying to work with their students from within an online forum. Thank you!!!
